Cold day ...catching up

Hello again...  We are now looking at my stitching efforts for .2014, well some of them.. I like to have small  projects to take with me when I go out stitching ..or just for a little light relief ..I love these and have made a few... 
 They are quite addictive and I have a little box of then tucked away for..........

My special friend in the States has moved house and her new colour scheme includes grey..I had a little book made to send her and then made a journal cover as well...
The little book sits inside the cover ..the bird is collage made a while back from a serviette she sent me.
 Front of the cover lots of hand work on this ..the lace and fabric was painted to get the shade of grey I wanted  a real fun project 

Back of the cover... I believe it sits on a bookcase  looking pretty ..to nice to use I am told..
But holds special photos and memoriablia .... So I am told.
 Next post will be my quilting both machine and hand.
Thanks for reading  this far...
